THE ODD OLYMPICS
Join us for an inverted, extroverted, and thoroughly subverted competition of ridiculous proportions featuring such instantly classical games as “Not Falling Out of A Chair,” “The Triple-Loop One-Legged Circle Stand,” and “I Found This.” This ill-advised, performance-based, quasi-athletic event features three primary performers: a referee and two team captains who draft passers-by to join them on the virtually real battlefield of nonsensical action to determine who does or does not have what it takes to be considered sufficiently odd. So pull on your long johns, grab your pruning sheers, and oil up the pigskin. It's time for some olympic-sized amusement.
THE REVOLUTION EXPERIENCE
Travel with us to a colonial marketplace where officers from General Washington's army endeavor to win new recruits to the cause of independence. In this “history from below” performance you'll meet the young sailor recently returned to shore from a six months' cruise against the British, a soldier's wife preparing to take to the road as a camp follower as her husband enlists, and a young recruit who traveled to Fort Ticonderoga with Henry Knox. Our unique interactive storytelling experience puts the audience in the tale. Audience members take the role of soldiers, generals, politicians, and war ships. Discover the real story of the men and women on the front lines of America's Revolutionary War.
THE MYTHOLOGY EXPERIENCE
This performance, ritual, workshop, and experimental adventure delves into the myths that led to the fabled Trojan War. In this interactive event, audience members are also participants, joining the performers as active collaborators. Become the Olympian Swan, discover Helen of Troy, help Paris choose his favorite goddess, and battle for the fate of the city. We encourage performers and non-performers alike to take part. All talents, skills, and creative energies are welcome contributions to our collective exploration.
